||We at the London Ambulance Service have recently discovered your site and were amazed to find other people with the same love of biscuits that we have. After extensive research we have found that you can apply psychology to groups of the community and guess their favourite biscuit. People generally fall into 3 groups these are...|
There is also another group of philistines who always say "Jaffa Cakes" this usually results in an explanation that theJaffacake though tasty is not a biscuit but a cake. If they still continue to complain we then take actions to remove them from the Ambulance.
We have also invented an exciting new game which involves gaining biscuits from various households that we go to and then awarding points for biscuits gained, e.g. rich tea 1 point and the Garibaldi is a mighty 10 points due to its rarity with the general public. Bonus points are awarded for Mcvities branding.
Thanks for what you have done for us
W.H. Warlord and R. Mellie.
|Nicey replies: Its good to know that Ambulance service have such a well grounded and common sense approach to biscuits. I'm pleased to see that you hold the Garibaldi in such high regard.|

||Where do you stand on the use of the word 'biccies'? I personally don't like it. It seems to be slang for slang's sake. It doesn't even truncate the length of the word. Dawn French would use the word, but I mean, it's still two syllables isn't it? So why 'biccies'? |
|Nicey replies: Simon,
You need to settle down a bit, this is not worth getting too upset over. 'Biccies' is fine in moderation, adding to the rich tapestry of our language. Obviously it would be annoying to use it all the time.
|Nicey, Oreos are icky. Especially when the filling is colored in seasonal themes, e.g., red for Christmas, orange for Halloween, green for St. Patricks Day. The true pinnacle of American commercial cookie/biscuit manufacturing is the Girl Scout Thin Mint. A thin round crispy chocolate-mint biscuit enrobed in a "chocolate" covering. They have been around for over 50 years, and represent 25% of all sales of Girl Scout cookies. Definitely a cult item. Very good frozen. They are currently on distribution this week and I have just received a box from my neighborhood Girl Scout. MMM! Girl Scout cookie history is at www.girlscouts.org, quite an interesting site. But not as entertaining as yours. Keep up the good work.|
Love the web site. As a trainer for Microsoft, I get my delegates in the classroom to view your site during training on Internet Exploer application - They too love it!
Just wondered if anyone else remembers a biscuit from the 70's called Royal Scott, it was a kind of shortbread biscuit. Although Ive not seen them since the 70's here in the south of england (sunny Hertfordshire), When working in Macclesfield a few years back, while staying in a hotel, they had Royal Scott biscuits available during morning tea...
Does anyone else remember these wonderful biscuits?
|Nicey replies: I hope your trainees get a tea break with biscuits on plates.
As for Royal Scott they definitely came in tins with a picture bloke in a kilt playing the bag-pipes (probably).
